I grew up watching Doctor Who. By the time I started watching the series was already on the third Doctor, Jon Pertwee. I watched through the fourth, Tom Baker and fifth, Peter Davidson. Back at the beginning I remember my dad making fun of me for being so fascinated. It wasn’t long before he was engrossed, watching along with me.
When the sixth Doctor, Colin Baker arrived, I pretty much lost touch with the series. By the time I went looking for it, it was gone. But then, in 2005, it was resurrected with Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor. Happy girl! I had TV back then so I didn’t miss an episode. Still don’t but now I have to wait for them to be released on DVD. A few months later, people who only watch things once start selling theirs off cheap and I can have them.
Recently I gathered up the three sets of the Doctor Revisteds. Last night I watched the movie with the eighth Doctor, Paul McGann. Fun! Too bad there weren’t more episodes with him. I will work my way through the last three Doctors even though I’ve seen them all. Once I do that, I get to watch the 50th Anniversary Special.
Sadly, after that I have to wait. Sigh. Perhaps I’ll watch all the DVDs I’ve collected. By the time I’m through them all again, the next season should be available.
